Snowblower swap

Recommended Posts

I would like to put my snowblower from my Big Ten onto my 7014S. I think this can be done with the same parts. Does anyone know if I am right or wrong? I think the blower will mount to either the same way. My blower is burried beneath a bunch of clutter or I'd just experiment. I think I may need a different sized belt too. Thanks.

You need the hitch for the 7014, which has a different pulley configuration for the front PTO on the 7014. The snow blower should be good. Second choice would be a then hitch from a 7100 and run off the center PTO, it does require the idler pully usually used for the mower deck to be moved. Third choice I think dutch made up a hitch that was a 2 belt setup that extended a pulley back to near the regular deck pulley extension. Then one belt doen to the new pully and one belt up to the snow blower.

The swap you are talking about can be done with stock parts. When I mounted the Sears snowblower on my AC716H, I had to make the entire belt drive system and modify the Sears hitch to hook to the AC front axle. Point I am trying to make is that nearly any of these attachments can be swapped with a little design and reconfiguration. Here is a link to the modifications I did to adapt the Sears unit http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=26221&SearchTerms=Sears Here is a link to my blower in action http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=26956&SearchTerms=Sears By-the-way, I think Dutch is also running a Kubota snowblower on his tractor.

The answer is both yes and no. The snowthrower itself can be used with no problem except for maybe bending the bracket for the lift arm. The Big Ten hitch will fit the 7014 if the hitch is modified. The Big Ten hitch also permits the snowthrower to be engaged and disengaged. The required modification to the Big Ten hitch will eliminate the engage / disengage feature. A front clutch will have to be added to the 7014 to permit the snowthrower to be engaged / disengaged. Here's how I did the conversion (with photos). http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=14355 Here's link detailing the hybrid hitch I made to mount a Kubota snowthrower as mentioned above. http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/snowthrower_hitch.htm
